Kevin Naidoo of the Rising Sun Chatsworth Athletic Club racing to the finish line in the Threshold Hillcrest Marathon on Sunday.
Sprint finish at the end of a marathon is rare, but it is one of the signatures of local runner, Kevin Naidoo.
He completed his fifth Threshold Hillcrest Marathon on Sunday, in a time of three hours 47 minutes, eclipsing his previous marathon best time by three minutes.
Since taking up the sport in 2014, and running his first Hillcrest marathon in 2015, in a time of four hours 57 minutes, Kevin has no doubt made huge strides in his running career.

Apart from the marathon which is 42 kilometres, which itself is a challenge, Kevin suffers from ‘Severe Bilateral Hearing Sensory Loss.’
He is completely deaf in his right ear and has 30 percent natural hearing which he uses a hearing aid. Recently, he has been running without his hearing aid, and seemed to help his concentration and improve his results.
2019 will see Kevin focusing on his second Two Oceans Ultra Marathon (56km) and third Comrades Marathon (88km).
